And the winner for Best of 2013: Breakthrough Device is...

Myotone Facial Toning Device ($279) is an at-home microcurrent device that really took me by surprise. It's the first such microcurrent device I've ever seen that's scaled down for home use AND that really works. It's for that reason that Myotone deserves the 2013 Breakthrough Device Award.  

The first thing to note about Myotone is that although it is an all-in-one device (no wands) like the NuFace, the metal probes are small. This turns out to be a good thing as Myotone is not only easy to use, it can also be effectively positioned at small, precise intervals.

The results following a Myotone session are immediate and impressive. There is a definite plumping and firming of the skin – by far the best results I have had from an at-home microcurrent device.

Microcurrent works at the muscular level, and having alternated with my Ultra Renew PLUS ($159 in the shop), it is a good complement to LED and ultrasound. Microcurrent uses a subsensory electric current that delivers a pulse to the facial muscles and stimulates them and the surrounding tissue. The theory is that microcurrent improves the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the chemical in muscles that provides energy.

One last point about microcurrent is that, like ultrasound or ionic (galvanic), it needs to be used with a water-based gel for conductivity and comfort. Myotone comes with its own Myotone Conductive Gel, a grim formula of propylene glycol, glycerin and phenoxyethanol that I used once and promptly jettisoned for my Ultra Renew Gel Serum.  That aside, Myotone is a keeper.

    Ok..So after having used this device, just as recommended (for about a month or so), I am noticing subtle changes. However, delving a bit more into the technology and its efficacy, I am unsure now if its causing more harm than good? A query was posted on Realself about the microcurrent technology; and this was response by the surgeon :
    "Microcurrent devices cause repeated contraction of your facial muscles. Fascial muscle contraction of the muscles of facial expression around the eyes and forehead are the primary cause of dynamic facial lines which eventually require Botox for treatment. I would not recommend microcurrent devices in attempt to tighten skin for fair producing more facial lines".

    Another video by Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel :

    Suggesting that facial exercises (the device seemingly replicates the same function) would in fact cause more harm than good, as we doing the exact opposite of relaxing the muscles.

    So, I am still unsure of what to believe. Any thoughts, suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)
